Deaths related to COVID-19 continued to rise this week in Niles, which has the highest number of COVID-19 deaths among Cook County suburbs, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.

As of Tuesday morning, a total of 89 people in Niles had died of COVID-19-related illness since March 16, the medical examiner’s office reported. That is an increase of 15 deaths in the last week.

Niles is home to several long-term care facilities, and a large percentage of the deaths reported by the medical examiner’s office occurred at these facilities, according to data provided by the Illinois Department of Public Health.

As of May 23, 57 people had died of COVID-19-related illness across six long-term care facilities in Niles, IDPH data showed. Most of the people who died were residents of two nursing homes: Niles Nursing and Rehabilitation, which reported 24 deaths, and Generations at Regency, which reported 19 deaths, according to the IDPH data.
